1:16 pm
so we're here to talk about proposed policy for infrastructure 49 districts along the port. this is a policy that the port has been working on trying to develop on the state level and now legally since 2005. and infrastructure financing district are a little bit like redevelopment. under a state law a city and county can form a subdivision to finance like new roads and parks. and the method of financing is exactly how it was in
1:17 pm
redevelopment law the infrastructure growth can capture new growth for periods up to 45 years. and the difference compared to redevelopment is property taxes are divided into a number of recipients the state gets a property tax dollar and the remaining $0.10 is divided up between the school district and community college district. and under an infrastructure financing district typically the only increment that can be captured is the $0.65. you can't capture the money it goes to schools or to the
1:18 pm
community college district. so it's property taxes can be used to a finance infrastructure through bonds or on a pay as you go basis. the ports are structured a little bit differently. redevelopment focused on providing affordable housing. by state law 20 percent of the increment must be spent on parks, bay assess and the remove of bay fill. as you know there's significant historic contamination along the port property. so in 2005 is when we first went up to try to develop the tool and it was really based on the
1:19 pm
work that the director and cf o director did in the first 10 year capital plan. the plan says the structural financial plan is not in its operating budget it's instead the bag log of capital improvements needed to bring the port property up to compliance and this chart there's two charts the one on the top with the red and blue the red shows total need along the port which is above $2 billion and the blue is the funding sources we've been able to identify. the chart below is a break out
1:20 pm
of the blue portion of the chart above. you'll see that i f did say major source we're looking to improve the water front. we've been legislativeing over time. that authorized you to fund the port property and it expanded the range of eligible use of tax increments with respect to the america's cup 80 to ask the state if it would allow infrastructure districts to capture the state that quarter
1:21 pm
of property tax dollars that goes up to the state and 801199 the state approved our ability to capture that tax increment under certain circumstances. >> i want to provide a little bit of the background between the ports fund. the bureau ton act which transfers from state to city control requires that we maintain a separate harbor fund it's separate from the city's general fund. we've done analysis over time to look at property taxes and the cost of city services on port property. there's a bit of a gap.
1:22 pm
there's some sources that are urban leashed and don't generate tax precedes. and there's a cost of providing city services in that budget. and we try and track that over time. there's a general prim the harbors shouldn't subsidize or excuse me. the general fund shouldn't subsidize those services. the improvements to piers and seismic upgrades there in the
1:23 pm
capital fund also like along with historic properties listed on the national register. so as we are thinking about forming districts along the port property and the first proposed districts will likely be considered in 2014 so we're a ways away from requesting the styrofoam a districts. there would be a policy framework everybody sort of accepted there would be community oversight but those structures don't exist so we're
1:24 pm
going to propose local districts to answer those issues. there are some just a few minutes properties where it might making make sense to include those ports particularly pier 70 but there's guidelines. we're suggesting that it's a policy decision for the board of supervisors when a district it formed whether to apply the port guidelines or the city's guidelines. next important we have to complete sequa. so we can't bring to you a set of without first analyzing the improvements.
1:25 pm
any improvements we have should be consistent with the public tries doctrine the 10 year capital plan and that's making sure we're proposing policy that's been adopt. next, we suggest that those are major master plans redevelopment areas in many respects and there ought to be a burden on the city to show there's a economical he - and we should demonstrate where we collect property taxes we need to be able to assure that the cost is covered by other taxes or you at least know
1:26 pm
what the financial trade offices are when your foreman a district. in those areas where we're able to capture the state share of property tax we would suggest the way that the states structured that ability was to say the states share could be made available in proportion to how much the increment we dedicated locally. we want to any other time the local distribution. number 7 on this slide is the key of what we sort of the heart of the policy. we're using tax increments to essentially purchase infrastructure that is built by our partners. and it's private equity it's an
1:27 pm
expensive form of financing. developers earner an annual income of 18 to 20 percent we're suggesting here we decade the full amount to pay off that private equity as quickly as possible to be as efficient in financing those improvements as possible. we're generally using the value of port property to pay that developer return fda law has real constraints so we're using the portland value to pay developer return. there will be in the districts literally hundreds of thousands of the dollars available after the infrastructure has been fined so in the year thirty
1:28 pm
there be significant amounts of funds available so the seawall will be funded as well >> thank you for your presentation just a question. could you walk us through an example of how this about be carried out on rapid, you know, reimbursements. >> yes. i actually have sort of the cost estimates for infrastructure investment in each of the 3 big projects that are coming a little bit after this slide so when i get to those slides i'll talk about how
1:29 pm
the developer will justice the equity and then how we will buy the infrastructure. so we think there's a big policy call to be made about where the excess fund also the city seawall is beyond it's life so the city may want to make improvements to the city seawall. i'll skip over that. the p the p the pay increment will be available. it's important that
